I think it sounds better, it is more of a "whooshing" sound. The ol' 7.3 isn't too quiet anyways so why not make it louder

Just makes the turbo whistle a little louder once it lights up. Its a PITA to get off though.

I did mine this past weekend, I used Goof Off, took about 30 min to remove all foil and isulation, had to soak it for 10 min after foil and most of the insulation was off. then just peeled sticky stuff off in strips. Ok, maybe a little longer, but wasn't the nightmare i was thinking.
So, that is why I have a whoosing sound now, can you hear the turbo blow off pressure now with it removed, i also installed a stage 2 AFE intake.

Thanks for the response
